CVDB Arquitectos Wins Contest for Student Housing in Lisbon

Courtesy of

CVDB Arquitectos has won a competition for a new student accommodation block at Lisbon University’s Pólo da Ajuda campus. The building consists of three interconnected but structurally separate units arranged around a central courtyard, with the internal layout being determined by the modular unit of the individual bedrooms. On the South side of the building, at street level, the building’s communal spaces and vital services provide a sense of transparency in the otherwise opaque building, connecting the central courtyard and the life of the students to the street outside.
